Characteristics of a 1200 V PT IGBT with trench gate and local life time control

A new 1200 V IGBT with a V/sub CE/(sat) of 1.9 V at 125/spl deg/C and 140 A/cm/sup 2/ has been developed using a trench gate PT (punch-through) structure and local life time control. Compared to state-of-the-art third generation planar devices, this device represents a 30% improvement of on-state losses at almost twice the current density. This paper… (More)
